I did consider GBRs or Bolivians but I want something a bit more interesting.

Does anybody know of any CARES fish that would be a good fit?

As Snow said you can go with a T8 fixture from a hardware store. I've found spectrum is just as important (if not more important) than intensity. Most of the plants you mentioned are low/medium light...

Thanks guys. I'll see if I can even get the tank. I haven't heard back from my friend.

Nice shots Aqua. If your 'crappy' camera has a video setting you could use that to film your rainbowfish. Then search it for a frame you like and pull that out. It's a good way to image quick fish.

A small school of dwarf cory cats would be great also if you want to go fishy

A rubber band around the wood attaching a rock works well if the shape of the wood allows it. Then after a month or two the wood should be fully soaked and you can remove the band.
